Is Fort Huachuca about to face a Base Realignment And Closure (BRAC) process? Mayor Rick Mueller talked to us about the possibility of BRAC taking place sooner rather then later and what it could mean for our community. He also discussed Sierra Vista’s role in the proposal for a new port of entry in Douglas, and what residents of Fry Town can expect if they are annexed into the city’s boundaries.
Topics of discussion with Herald/Review Opinions Editor Eric Petermann included the Bisbee bag ban, the issue of effluent flowing across the border from Mexico, the impact of mining operations in the county, and the Douglas port of entry.
We learned about the vital services provided by the Casa De La Paz Hospice, which is part of the Canyon Vista Medical Center. We were joined by members of its dedicated staff – Tina Gilbertson and Claudia Garcia – who talked about why every family should be talking about end of life care, and why hospice care is about living.
